The Irishman Founders Reserve Caribbean Cask Finish
Tasted as part of the Walsh Whiskey Tweet Tasting, this Irishman Caribbean Cask Finish is one of the four tasted.
A Very tasty dram that is much more robust than the other Irishman, this is much more of a Scotch still slightly dirty dram than the usual clean easy going lines of an Irish dram.
I don't really get much influence from the Caribbean Cask which is a little disappointing and could do with a bit more time in the cask I would suggest. but it is still very much an interesting dram that is worth a go.
Thanks to The Whisky Wire for organising this Tweet Tasting.
I was expecting lots of sweet rum notes but there aren't any initially, it's got a hint of fruit skins, grapes, plums, and a touch of vanilla sugar sweetness, followed by some acetone, and some undercooked cake dough.
More robust than I was expecting from the nose, quite a bit of warming spices, cinnamon and nutmeg infused tinned fruit salad, acetone, undercooked cake dough, a tingle of cinnamon sugar and ground white pepper.
Sweet, cinnamon sugar, white pepper.
